ProSource supplies a vast variety of industrial bearings to customers across a broad range of industries, each fashioned to meet specific needs and operate under the conditions and constraints that come along with each application. And for each industry and each application, one must factor in certain nuances when selecting a bearing type that will perform optimally in that situation. When you’re strategic in choosing your bearing types, you can enhance product performance, and better position yourself against competitors in your particular industry.
When it comes to the food & beverage industry, it’s imperative to select food-grade bearings that are designed to not only meet the stringent requirements industry players must operate within, but also can perform well in harsh conditions. Food-grade bearings and related parts are vital to production throughout the manufacturing, processing, and handling of edible items.
Challenges sometimes arise due to extreme temperatures– both low and high, moisture issues, potential for contamination, chemical exposure, frequent washdowns, and more. All of these factors make selecting the right bearings all the more critical.
Automation and the use of robotics across many industries continues to rise in popularity as companies begin to understand the potential for increasing productivity and efficiency while reducing costs. Typical applications for robotics include welding, painting, product inspection and testing, and assembly. Incredible endurance, speed, and precision can be achieved with the right automation bearings perfect for more sensitive applications.
There is a vast catalog of bearing products custom tailored to meet the demanding application needs of the medical industry, from surgical and dental tools to lab and diagnostic equipment. Bearings for these medical applications should be suited for high speeds, low noise, long life, and resistance to aggressive chemicals or fluids and potentially harsh environments. These bearings must also meet rigorous regulations associated with the industry.
When it comes to agriculture, mining, construction, and similar industries, system components must be durable and high-quality to ensure equipment runs efficiently, avoiding the devastation that comes with field failures. Working in these sectors comes along with extreme temperatures, contaminants, and sometimes moisture, and the bearings used must be suited to stand up against these potential challenges.
